Welcome back! We hope you had an enjoyable Christmas break.
On Thursday 18th January we are going on our first school trip! We are off to Brooklands Motor Museum to launch our new topic 'Transport'. You should have received the consent slip by now, please ensure this is returned ASAP along with your children sandwich filling option for a school supplied packed lunch.
Tricky word target cards
In Reception, children begin to learn to read using phonics. They also need to recognise and remember tricky words that cannot be sounded out letter by letter. Coming home with each reception child is a tricky word target card. Please practice reading these words at home. J
We still have a number of parents not engaging with Tapestry. If you have not received an email to activate your account it may be because we don't hold a current email address for you, or we may need to check we have the correct email address for you. Please notify your child's class teacher.
All reception children have been issued with a reading book. This are checked and changed every Monday and Thursday. Please record any observations in the notes section of the reading record book and indicated weather the book is finished, and we will changed the book for a new one on these days.
As discussed at the curriculum presentation, we run a half termly homework grid system. A copy of the homework grid can be found inside each child's reading record book, or downloaded from this page. We recommend each child to obtain 8 points worth of homework over the term. This can be made up of a variety of activities listed on the grid. Once complete we will sign off the activity on the child's grid to indicate it complete. Homework grid activities form our show and tell.
Please ensure your child's P.E. kit is name labelled and check that you do not have any other kit in your child's bag. If you find any items that don't belong to your child in their bag please return them to the class teacher. Thank you for your support.
